The supporters then forcibly led the driver to park the vehicle at the district police station, after mounting road blocks on his way.

It turned out however, that the vehicle was being sent to the washing bay to be cleaned up for a formal handing over by the DCE.

This action of the NPP supporters apparently angered the NDC supporters in the area who also followed up at the Police station in defense of the DCE, which started the clashes.
